Covid-19 Safety Protocols
At Jericho Dental Centre, we have implemented enhanced infection control protocols above and beyond the strict policies we already have in place. We have created new patient flows to follow physical distancing guidelines such as a protective barrier at the front desk to keep all of our patients and staff safe.
The safety of our patients and staff remains our top priority
Jericho Dental Centre’s common goal is a safe and healthy appointment.
Surgically Clean Air's JADE Air Purifier (SCA5000C) is one of the World's Most Advanced Standalone Medical Grade Air Purifiers.
We have installed 3 of these air purifying units to provide clean air continuously throughout our office.
Microbial air pollution is a health issue and this is where technology helps makes us a safer practice. Air purification systems can play a role in significantly reducing transmittable bio-aerosols.
Here are the safety protocols that we have implemented to protect your health:
BOOKING YOUR APPOINTMENT
DURING YOUR APPOINTMENT
Before the procedure, you will be given a food-grade hydrogen peroxide rinse. You will be removing your face mask/covering and holding it while doing the rinse for 1 minute. After the 1 minute, you will be instructed where to dispose of it and you will put your face mask/covering back on. Dr. Shah will complete your appointment.
Hands will need to be sanitized before leaving the operatory. You may then head to the front desk to complete any payment or exit forms that are required.
Thank you so much for your cooperation, and we look forward to taking care of your dental needs very soon!
At our reception desks, we’ve installed plexiglass barriers and placed ‘Stand Here’ markers on the ground away from the desk to encourage physical distancing.
In our waiting rooms, we have left a minimum number of chairs for seating and ensure they are placed 2 metres (6 feet) apart. Our staff members will wipe down all surfaces including door handles with a disinfectant cleaner.
STAFF/ VISITORS MONITORING
In addition to these new protocols, our staff will continuously self-monitor for any Covid related symptoms they may experience and will quarantine for the mandatory 14 days in the event they are ill.
Visitors like Patients’ guardians, sales reps, lab technicians are also screened for Covid and temperatures are taken and recorded in the visitor logs with their phone numbers.
